The distinguished surname Pockorny is of Austrian origin. It is derived from the Polish word "pokorny," meaning "subservient, humble."

Pockorny Early Origins



The surname Pockorny was first found in Austria, where the name was first used. During the 11th and 12th centuries, native Slavs living in Austria were often referred to as "Pockorny" by the native Austrians in an assertion of the victory of Otto the Great over the invaders. It is likely that the name evolved from nickname to surname during the early Middle Ages. Literally the name means "the humble one."
